Communicate & Lead


I connect with people via writing narrative, developing vocation, and leading holistically.


I'm currently in process for a doctoral degree. I graduated with a Master of Arts (MA) in Communication and Organizational Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in English and Communication emphasizing Creative Writing and Mass Media Studies from the University of Washington. I studied Journalism, Bible & Theology at Multnomah University.


I endeavor to encourage and facilitate growth and healing during adversity or change. I purpose to partner with organizations to create beneficial approaches to communicating health, education, and the public commons. I consult cross-sector partnerships, and develop leaders and organizations, via narrative and communication approaches.

Live by Passion

I'm passionate about encouraging people through transitions, writing, and supporting leaders and organizations to tell their story with heart and skill. The origins of passion mean to suffer (Kouzes & Posner, 2003). I respond to adversity by developing vocation (1 Timothy 4:14-16). I integrate these gifts to speak faith-inspired encouragement and healing to a variety of roles and organizations.

Live by Compassion

Compassion means empathizing and suffering with others (see Kouzes & Posner, 2003). Compassion challenges me to persevere through adversity toward worthwhile goals, to envision a bright future, and then to act on that vision. I love people and aspire to treat each person, organization, and community conscientiously and professionally.

Professional Statement

I consult leaders and develop organizations via vocational development, communication strategy, intermedia narrative, organizational health and well-being, and holistic leadership. I write, photograph, produce, and integrate intermedia and community profiles, and provide narrative inquiry. I advise decision-makers on quality of life for constituents.

Research & Consulting Goals

Currently, I research organizational health and well-being as recontextualizing liminal stress via intermedia narrative. I desire that my academic writing encourage and inspire others while contributing to my themes.


I am a member of Society for Applied Anthropology, Western States Communication Association, and Challenging Hate.
